The School of Education are pleased to welcome Professor Becky Allen and Professor Peter Clough who have recently joined our research and enterprise team.
The School of Education’s Pippa Totraku is sewing hearts for sick patients in Intensive Care – and now she’s making scrubs too.
Having seen the call for more personal protective equipment, Pippa (Principal Lecturer Lead for Planning and Admissions), who knits and sews for a hobby, sought out a way to help and found Facebook group, ‘For the love of scrubs’.
Pippa spotted a request for crafters to make hearts for coronavirus patients who are critically ill in Intensive Care Units. With access limited for close relatives, the idea is for one heart to stay with the patient and another to be sent to a relative, so that they can both share something physical.
Pippa said: “It’s a very small and personal contribution but the amazing work done by the group was something I had to be a part of.” Read More

Creators of some of the country’s best-known children’s fiction told University of Brighton School of Education students how writing and drawing are not as straight forward as they may seem.
Illustrator Nick Sharratt, winner of the Children’s Book Award, and Sophy Henn, picture book maker and University of Brighton graduate, spoke to students as part of ‘READ TO INSPIRE’, an annual event for the University’s Primary PGCE and Early Years trainee teachers.
The two explained just how complex creating can be: “Picture fiction are complex narratives where both word and image work together to form more than the sum of the parts.” Read More
The School of Education held its first Student Voice Week in December.
The event was designed in consultation with students with the aim of gaining a deeper understanding of how School of Education students understand the term ‘student voice’ and their experiences of it during their study-lives.
Dr Richard Wallis, Deputy Head of the School of Education, shared the key objective of the project stating that is was to “find out from our student body, what they understand student voice to mean and how it has been most effectively experienced during the course of their study”.
Throughout the week students could visit our stands to chat with student voice ambassadors, add to the ‘thoughts board’, complete a survey and eat cakes and pastries! Over the course of the week the ambassadors were visited by around 150 students. Read More
